What types of plants are suitable for a kokedama?

The best plants for the kokedama technique

The technique of kokedama technique can be applied to a wide variety of plants. The best thing to do is to try it with the plant you like the most and give your kokedama the care it needs. However, there are plants that are more grateful than others and that adapt very well to the moss ball.

What should I take into account when choosing my plant?

First of all, it is important that they are plants that adapt well indoors. If we leave a kokedama outdoors, even if the plant itself survives and grows well, the moss can suffer a lot, especially if it receives direct sun or if the temperatures are very low.


Secondly, plants should ideally be tall or slender. Hanging plants, such as potus or ferns, are also a good choice, but the moss ball may not show off as well, as it may be hidden under the foliage.

When choosing a plant, the growth rate should also be considered. If you prefer a kokedama that will keep its shape and size longer, choose a plant with a slower growth rate. If you prefer it to grow faster, choose a faster growing plant.

Finally, it is important to take into account the compatibility of the plant with the kokedama technique, there are some that can be more delicate and susceptible to this technique. Here is a list of our favorite plants for kokedama.
